Project : Networking and Telecommunications
All sources should be cited both in-text and in References using APA format
Number of Pages Exclude references and cover page
Part 1
The retail store has hired you to assist in resolving the recent networking problems that have been occurring. The new owner needs you to address the issues so that his company can accomplish its mission and goals. He thinks that the network needs to expand (or at least be fixed), but at this point, he has no idea what the current network has or what it needs. The owner needs you to assess the current network, come up with some conclusions about next steps, and report the results to him. He wants to make sure that you have a good understanding of his goals and objectives as well as the presenting problems.

•    Network Architecture Assessment (4–5 pages)
o    Describe the general business environment for the case study organization.
o    Include a network goals and objectives statement.
o    Include a narrative that provides an assessment about the general current state of the network architecture.
o    Include a narrative that details your conclusions about the extent to which the current network supports the stated business goals and objectives.
o    Include a narrative that articulates each of the networking problems that the owner has presented.
o    Provide an analysis as to how this part of the project fulfills the mission and 1 or more goals of the case study organization.
Part 2
The retail store has informed you that no documentation of the current network exists. There are numerous types of data communications that occur in a retail company, and the employees are willing to explain to you what information they work with and the steps that are involved to process the daily business transaction paperwork.
Assume that the retail store is currently using open systems interconnection (OSI) and transmission control protocol/Internet protocol (TCP/IP) in a dual-stacked environment. This has proven to be memory-intensive and has caused an inability for application internetworking to occur.
Network Reference Model (OSI vs. TCP/IP) Comparison (4–5 pages)
The project deliverables for this week are as follows:
•    Create a network reference model diagram of the current network that describes the role of each layer for both OSI and TCP/IP that are used to transmit data between the devices and applications specifically in your retail store.
•    Create a revised network reference model diagram of the proposed network solution (using OSI or TCP/IP) that describes the hardware and software that are used to transmit data between the devices and applications in your retail stores.
•    Based on the current dual-stacked network environment, create a data flow diagram for both OSI and TCP/IP that shows at least 4 typical network connections that are made by users in your retail store. Show how the data and information flow from the user workstation to the application using both the OSI and TCP/IP network models and the impact of encapsulation.
•    Create a revised data flow diagram based on the proposed network solution that shows at least 4 typical network connections that are made by users in your retail store. Show how the data and information flow from the user workstation to the application using the chosen network model (using OSI or TCP/IP) and the impact of encapsulation.
•    Provide an analysis as to how this part of the project fulfills the mission and 1 or more goals of the case study organization.
•    Note: Use Microsoft Visio or equivalent to create the network reference model (current and revised) and data flow (current and revised) diagrams. You will embed the diagrams in the Word document and also provide them as attachments. See your Web resources for additional diagramming tools.
Part 3
The retail store knows that the current network model is not reliable, and the idea of adding a Web server to host its Web site seems unfeasible. To the best of his ability, Matt (the information technology [IT] support person) has shared with you that there is an AS/400 mainframe, 15 workstations, a router, several hubs to support 3 workgroups of 5 nodes each, a database, and a file server. It is hoped that the company will grow and that it will need to hire more employees in the near future. Internet access is sporadic, but it is supposed to work (according to the cable company).
Network Design Diagram (4–5 pages)
•    Create a local area network (LAN) design diagram of the current network that describes the hardware and software resources that Matt described.
•    Create a revised LAN design diagram of your proposed network that describes the hardware and software resources that you recommend be implemented.
o    Provide a rationale for your network design.
•    In support of your revised LAN diagram, provide a specific narrative that details the specific changes that you are recommending and why you feel that those changes should be made.
•    Provide an analysis as to how this part of the project fulfills the mission and 1 or more goals of the case study organization.
•    Note: Use Microsoft Visio or equivalent to create the LAN design diagrams (current and revised). You will embed the diagrams in the Word document and also provide them as attachments.
Part 4
The retail store knows that it needs to manage its telecommunications costs more effectively. Based on what the owner has shared with you about his goals to maximize the Internet for this purpose, provide a solution that will support the telecommunications (phone and fax) needs of the company.
The project deliverables are as follows:
•    Telecommunications Plan (4–5 pages)
o    Include a telecommunications goals and objectives statement.
o    Include a revised network diagram that depicts the proposed telecommunications solution.
o    Describe the advantages of sharing hardware and software resources that are used for telecommunications.
o    Provide an analysis as to how this part of the project fulfills the mission and 1 or more goals of the case study organization.
•    Note: Use Microsoft Visio or equivalent to revise the previously proposed network diagram. You will embed the diagrams in the Word document and also provide them as attachments.
Part 5
Key Assignment
The retail store wants to take advantage of new technologies, such as a virtual private network (VPN), for the salespeople to connect remotely or cloud computing to store data off-site securely and to be able to process financial transactions securely over the Web. The owner does not know what hardware or software is needed to take advantage of the latest capabilities that technology has to offer.
Remote Network Implementation Plan (4–5 pages)
The project deliverables are as follows:
•    Include a remote network access goals and objectives statement.
•    Include a revised network diagram that depicts a plan to incorporate VPN technology, cloud computing, and Internet protocol security (IPsec) into the current network.
•    Describe the security implications of using these technologies and how risk will be mitigated from a network hardware and software perspective.
•    Provide an analysis as to how this part of the project fulfills the mission and 1 or more goals of the case study organization.

About us

We are a team of like-minded people who established Wileyscholars.com to help students all over the world. It all began a few years ago when we, as students, helped each other complete our own assignments. Shortly after, we discovered that other students need help too: that is when Wileyscholars was created. It is an online service that provides help with academic assignments all over the world. Our main aim is to help hundreds of students pass their tests and home assignments by giving advice and helping to get to know the subject better.
